The amount left over for savings is the take-home pay minus the total expenses.
If the take-home pay is $7,450 and the total expenses are $6,390, then the amount of money left over for savings is $7,450−$6,390=$1,060

Maurice and Lester are twins who have just graduated from college. They have both been offered jobs where their take-home pay would be $2500 per month. Their parents have given Maurice and Lester two options for a graduation gift. Option 1: If they choose to pursue a graduate degree, their parents will give each of them a gift of $35,000. However, they must pay for their tuition and living expenses out of the gift. Option 2: If they choose to go directly into the workforce, their parents will give each of them a gift of $5000. Maurice decides to go to graduate school for 2 years. He locks in a tuition rate by paying $11,500 for the 2 years in advance, and he figures that his monthly expenses will be $1000. Lester decides to go straight into the workforce. Lester finds that after paying his rent, utilities, and other living expenses, he will be able to save $200 per month. Their parents deposit the appropriate amount of money in a money market account for each twin. The money market accounts are currently paying a nominal interest rate of 3 percent, compounded monthly. At the end of 2 years, Lester receives a raise and decides to save $250 each month. Maurice receives a $5000 graduation gift from his parents and deposits this amount into his money market account. Maurice goes to work and saves $500 each month. Complete the equations below for the money market account balance for each twin. Let the initial balance u0 be the account balance at the end of 2 years. Write an expression for this month's account balance un in terms of un−1. Recall that the interest rate for the account is 3 percent, compounded monthly. Maurice:\( u_{0}=\$ 5248.47, u_{n}=\text{_____.}\ \text{Lester}: u_{0}=\text{_____}, u_{n}=\text{_____}.\)

Lester works during the time that Maurice attends graduate school. Each month, Lester saves $200 and deposits this amount into the $5000 money market account that his parents set up for him when he graduated. If Lester's initial balance is \(u_{0}=5000,u_n\) is the current month's balance, and \(u_{n−1}\) is last month's balance, write an expression for un in terms of \(u_{n−1}\).
